    Something I found interesting:

    Last month in New York state, a court ruling came down that received minimal attention, but could have serious implications in the coaching universe. In that case, Marist v. James Madison, a New York trial court judge ruled that James Madison and coach Matt Brady owed damages to Marist because Brady violated the terms of his contract by recruiting several players for James Madison that he’d also been recruiting at Marist.

    It’s an interesting case. Coaches have largely been able to get away with dragging their recruits with them to a new school, largely because it’s something that is basically unenforceable – and if it is proven to be true, what exactly should be paid in terms of damages? How do you value a scholarship education, or institutional prestige, that was lost?

    I think this is something to keep an eye on.
